The Australia Pacific Cup and Men’s and Women’s Summer Slam – Fully Loaded Softball events will now be played at Blacktown International Sportspark in early 2022.

Softball Australia has cancelled the women’s and men’s Summer Slam - Fully Loaded Softball 2021 due to border restrictions within the country and ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The decision came after the cancellation of the Australia Pacific Cup in early February. Originally planned to take place from 8-11 March, the national governing body had previously rescheduled the event for April.
